You heard that right, all you kung-fu lovin' mofos... Black Dynamite is back, and he is doing it big! While we wait for director Scott Sanders and actor Michael Jai White to bring us another installment of the film franchise (rumor has it to be a ghetto western in the vein of Blazing Saddles) we have to make due with a 4 issue mini series from IDW. Following up the epic one shot graphic novel, Black Dynamite: Escape From Slave Island, we are getting a four issue limited series from writer Brian Ash, art by Ron Wimberley, and inks by the LEGENDARY Sal Buscema! The first issue hit stores this week, and hopefully the next three issues will be on time over the next three months (first issue Feb, followed by March, April and May). The comic is sure to continue the radical racial hi jinks and nonsense that the movie brought forth, and even kick it up a notch considering there is no limitations to budget in a comic book. In Slave Island BD had a fist fight with a SHARK... A GREAT WHITE SHARK!!! Now he takes on a villain by the name of Too Swole (really!). Can't wait to see what Ash and Wimberley have in store for my favorite anti-hero. Click here to order your copy on Amazon, or go to your local Mom & Pop comic store and pick your copy up! You can see the full press release and the first cover after the jump.
